Location, location, location, yes it really is quite possibly the best placed hotel in Funchal, situated right by the sea front and just minutes walk to local restaurants in the pretty old town. A further 10 minutes walk will take you to the centre where there are shops and further bars/restaurants. The rooms are a fairly decent size and have...

This was our first visit to this hotel, we stayed for a week over the new year & it didn't disappoint. When I made my booking 11 months before I arranged thru the hotel for a car to pick us up at the airport but because of Christmas I never got around to checking the arrangement but no worries all...

The great thing about this hotel is that it is NOT in the so-called Hotel Zone (or hotel ghetto as we think of it). It's low-rise, at the eastern end of the promenade, close to Rua de Santa Maria with its amazing choice of excellent restaurants and bars. The rooms are quiet, the breakfasts are adequate, the place is very...

Stayed for a second time here a few months back, and it didn't disappoint. Everything (bar one tiny detail) was excellent, as expected. From the greetings at breakfast, to the last gulp of vino late on, everything was a joy. The one 'detail' came at one evenings gala ( i think) dinner. A cracking meal was spoiled by a desert...

Yet again, we returned to Funchal and the Porto Santa Maria for the New Year celebrations. Starting with a most excellent New Year's Eve Gala Dinner, with great company, superb food and wine that flowed! Then to the hotel roof terrace to watch the fireworks. But I forget to mention the welcome that you get. Such smiling faces at reception...

Porto Santa Maria is a beautiful hotel next to the sea close to the harbour and if you have a sea view room it overlooks the swimming pool and the harbour also its on the flat its easy to walk into Funchal.The food is good but there are plenty of restaurants nearby

Have just returned from another great stay at the Santa Maria, once again staff fantastic and can't do enough to assist, however, I was saddened and disappointed at the lack of Christmas decorations this visit, the area leading up to and including the bar had no decorations at all, usually the bar area has a few but this year nothing,...
